The Bagel Place lgooThe Bagel Place, previously mentioned in August, is now eyeing a November debut in Newton Upper Falls, Boston Restaurant Talk notes.

Job postings listed over the weekend indicate that the Vermont-based company is currently hiring management. The Bagel Place has iconic Vermont mountaintop Camel's Hump in its logo; the brand launched in So. Burlington late in 2012. The shop at 1166 Williston Rd., not far from the University of Vermont and the Burlington International Airport, serves house-made bagels and cream cheese, as well as sandwiches, soups, and salads.

A 2013 article from the So. Burlington-based The Other Paper notes owner Nate Malley's bagels are steamed, not boiled. An owner or manager wasn't available this morning at the So. Burlington shop to confirm if the Newton shop will feature the same type of bagels, but the job listing indicates back-of-house staff must "[strictly conform] to company recipes and procedures."

In Vermont, The Bagel Place has a rustic interior, with reclaimed barnboard and antiques throughout. It offers popular sandwiches, including lunch specials like jerk turkey with guacamole and Colby Jack cheese; and Vermont Smoke & Cure ham with chive mayo and Colby Jack. Based on the job descriptions, the Newton branch will also offer specialty bagels (i.e. kale & cheddar, Sriracha bacon cheddar, sweet chocolate chip; maybe the Boston area will be so lucky as to get some Heady Topper Swiss bagels), spreads, sandwiches, soups, and salads.
